The University Senate

The University Senate is the representative body through which faculty, staff, and students participate in shared governance and university affairs at SUNY Oneonta. It provides a forum for the campus community to participate in the initiation, development, and implementation of the educational mission of the university. The University Senate is empowered to act for SUNY Oneonta faculty in all matters, procedures, and prerogatives in its meetings.

University Senate meetings take place approximately every two weeks during the academic year. The Steering Committee, the executive committee of the University Senate, meets on alternating weeks to plan the agendas for the senate meetings.

Note on Alternate Locations: On September 9 and October 21, the Senate will meet in IRC3.
